An Olympiakos Piraeus soccer fan holds aloft in one hand a club flag and, in the other, pieces from the stands of the club’s historical Karaiskaki home stadium at the end of yesterday’s memorial ceremony for 21 victims of a 1981 crowd stampede. The last section of the stands was demolished yesterday ahead of reconstruction in view of the 2004 Olympics. Olympiakos won their seventh straight championship this year.
